I have a mobo that has gone south. It is an ASUS. Numbers appearing on the board are N13219 and ABV V.2.00. It has 4 Dimm slots, can handle both IDE and SATA drives, there is a VIA chip. The on/off switch is positioned correctly on the board, along with the reset, but the power switch does not turn the board on. The reset switch does. Fans come on, power supply measures correctly, no floppy drive access (tried a known good one), nothing on the screen (tried several known good video cards). Video is by a separate card, not on the mobo. There are 5 PCI slots and one AGP slot. There are 4 USB ports on the board and capable of 4 additional ones. There are dual sound ports on the board also.

When was the last time the BIOS battery was replaced? Typical life is about 3~4 years, depending on use. If the battery dies, then the BIOS settings will likely revert to default. And the real-time clock will not function. Had two Asus boards that would not respond. But a new BIOS battery, and all was good. Many mobo types depend on the real-time clock function before they start operation.
